It is almost 2 weeks since Australians voted for our next Federal Government. Or at least some citizens voted. The informal vote (i.e. a non vote) was the third highest vote suggesting 15% of people who put their voting papers in the ballot box don’t want either Julia Gillard or Tony Abbott as Prime Minister.
Messenger News journalist Matt Abraham's highly humourous article today Good people of 'Straya, listen up, sums up what a lot of people are thinking. You can read all of Matt’s article here.
I agree with this point of Matt’s: The position of Leader of the Opposition will be abolished immediately. We no longer need one. This nation, ‘Straya, is grown up enough now not to have a political system where half the people are paid to oppose the people who are elected to run the place.
Thank you for bringing us to our senses. Frankly, I don’t know what we’ve been doing fighting each other all this time when we could have been working together to better serve you all.
Are you serving all your stakeholders? To do so is the challenge and task of everyone in business, to provide the value to all our stakeholders that they demand, desire, and feel they deserve.
The first step to serving stakeholders is to ask them what is the value that they demand, desire, and feel they deserve? Australian politicians like most politicians didn’t ask, they told, lectured even, and then wondered why we were confused at the ballot box. And becasuse of all the huffing and puffing and posturing since election day most Australian’s have turned off, and politics has another nail in its coffin.
When was the last time you asked your stakeholders want they want? How often do you ask? How many different ways do you ask? And, how quickly do you take action on what people are telling you?
